Real Talk #1: Women sharing stories and growing together

Real Talk #1: Women sharing stories and growing together

Are we 21st century women? A recent BBC Woman’s Hour report rated Islington as the worst place in Britain for women. What does this mean? Why are women still living in the shadow of men, paid less, struggling to have their perspectives valued? And how does gender inequality impact women of different identities?

Real Talk is a series of three workshops that will look at myths and barriers that plague feminism, equality and liberation for women. 

In an environment that nurtures acceptance and personal transformation, you will hear from women who have been on the journey of deconstructing negative belief systems and defying cultural and social expectations of women. The first three workshops will focus on identity, culture, faith and race exploring who we are, what has shaped us as individuals and how our histories intersect with the communities and society in which we live. The follow up gatherings will focus on sexuality, age and relationships.

The workshops are intended to be a platform for the individual and collective voice of women to be heard and to form a network of women who want to shape and influence the society we live in. We will use methods including peer coaching, education and real life stories that foster learning and increase our understanding of each other by creating an environment that nurtures acceptance and personal transformation.
